The Pumpkin Formerly Known as Big Green...

Good evening, Growers!

This update and image from Diane Mc Fadden:

"Stuart: This is my mom's Big Green in Oceanside. During the time of the heat, the vine just up and totally died and then I would guess within a week they said the stem was mushy and moldy...this is the stem end. They also rolled it over so this is the bottom side. Could the powdery mildew do this? any ideas? Too bad they were very excited about growing one finally! Diane McFadden"

Alas, another one bites the dust! Verily, it's been a tough season.

Hang in there!
